I have been using this on and off for several years to maintain my weight and prevent overeating. It works very well. To the new users I would say this: give it a couple of weeks to kick in. It needs to build up in your system. Also, it isn't a stimulant or a metabolism booster or anything like that. It's a straight appetite suppressant, nothing more. And it's not a miracle pill, but it does work. If that's what you need, this may fit the bill. Because there haven't been (to my knowledge) any conclusive studies about the long term effects of hoodia on the human body, my choice is to use with caution. I cycle on and off frequently and I also take it with milk thistle (a known liver protectant and purifier) just in case. I do like the fact that I haven't built a tolerance to it and that it doesn't cause things like jitters, high blood pressure or heart issues--which is often the case with other diet supplements. This works for me. And I'll probably keep using it. NOW products have never been a disappointment.

I've been using this product for almost two months. Although I do not see any new hair growth (trust me, I check daily), I'm happy to report that I'm not losing truckloads of hair in the shower anymore. My hair loss is/was the result of fluctuating hormone levels in peri-meno, as well as a host of unsuccessful fertility treatments. I'm going to keep using I guess, since I'm interested in keeping the hair I've got. Not only that, but a friend of mine who I hadn't seen in awhile made an unsolicited comment about the fact that my hair appeared to have grown quite a bit since she'd last seen me. That's cool, too.

I couldn't wait to try these so that I could post my review. Much better than expected. Worked great with a simple marinara sauce; I added a seafood mix consisting of shrimp, scallops, calamari and simmered all for about 20 minutes. Noodles were softer than expected and absorbed the flavor nicely. Next time I may try a pesto. Very filling. Very pleasant. Much better than shiritake noodles, by far. Thank you. I will definitely be ordering more and experimenting with these, utilizing lots of different food groups!

I like this stuff! I don't know that I've lost weight from it, but it has so many great ingredients for inflammation in general, that I decided to order more. I believe it is helping my arthritis. It does curb appetite effectively, also. I just need to remember to take it in the morning as I take most of my supplements at dinner in the evening. Great product. I hope others will try it and review it, too.

I am taking this in conjunction with Source Naturals Inflama-Trim. The combo seems to be exactly what I was looking for in terms of appetite suppression, no jitters and retaining muscle mass on a reduced calorie plan. Not a magic pill, but it does make staying on your food plan or diet so much easier. Recommend!
